Mead Treadwell for Alaska
In the Alaska Senate race, I’m going with Mead Treadwell, the Lt. Governor. This puts me at odds with some of my friends on the right. But I think Mead would be the best. For one thing, he is better on the stand your ground law in Alaska than his opponent. But Treadwell also has shown an ability to build support in Alaska that extends | Read More »

VIDEO: Embattled, and Exasperated, Gov. Hickenlooper to Colorado Sheriffs: WTF!!
I told you more was coming… I already talked about Hickenlooper’s “half ass” apology to the sheriffs, along with his blatant lies, but this takes the cake. For those without video, or who have small children in the room, what is heard in the video is Governor Hickenlooper apologizing to the sheriffs for not knowing that the sheriffs tried to meet with him while these | Read More »
Sure, Hillary Clinton should promise to fulfill Barack Obama’s legacy!
I don’t really want* to fisk this article on how Hillary Clinton should run on a platform of being Barack Obama’s third term – she totally should, by the way – but it’s hard not to fisk when somebody leads off with a sentence this interruptible. So let me just interject, the one time: Conventional wisdom has it that President Obama’s middling poll numbers will be | Read More »

Obama’s Missing 18 Minutes of Tape
In order to properly analyze the media’s treatment of the revelation that hundreds or perhaps thousands of emails sent or received by Lois Lerner, the key figure in the IRS scandal, along with apparently six other IRS employees, have been mysteriously lost and cannot be recovered in response to a subpoena, it is necessary and instructive to recall the media’s treatment of similar revelations in | Read More »
Obama uses a crisis to roll the GOP on “comprehensive immigration reform”
When the Fast & Furious scandal came to light it had the appearance of a manufactured crisis designed to drive the US domestic debate on gun control. If US purchased weapons were showing up in the hands of Mexican narcotrafficantes then those weapons could make a case for more stringent gun control within the United States. Obama has made numerous statements on the chaos American | Read More »
What Dana Milbank Does Not Tell You
If you read this piece by Dana Milbank you’d think the Heritage Foundation was going off the rails on Benghazi and waging attacks against muslims.

Nonetheless, the left and Dana Milbank want to paint prosecutor Andy McCarthy’s group as racist and also the Heritage Foundation. Mind you, what Milbank does not | Read More »

Principle Over Profits
Yesterday at the New York Meeting, a gathering of conservatives in New York, Haley Barbour said the GOP’s goal should not be purity. He also praised Eric Cantor. There is a great disconnect in the political press and among politicians like Haley Barbour over the endgame of conservatives in America. It is not actually about purity for the sake of purity. It never has been. | Read More »
Tech at Night: Email technology behind the ECPA and IRS issues
Email technology has changed over the years, and some people hope you don’t understand why, and how that matters for the issues of the day. So tonight I’m going to discuss how the technologies have changed, and why that influences the debates over both the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) and the IRS missing emails scandal.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is bogged down in a scandal. That scandal is getting worse. So what does the VA do? It takes to Twitter to solve the crisis. Only that crisis is not the scandal.
